Luise Spannring in Salzburg

Stove tile at the Steingasse in Salzburg, Austria

This ceramic tile in the Steingasse is reminiscent of the ceramicist Luise Spannring (1894-1982). In Salzburg, she became known as the founder of a ceramic school. Her works are exhibited in numerous museums, in the Salzburg Museum you can see ceramic nativity scenes from her. [German]

The ceramic tile is also reminiscent of the stove setter (Hafner) trade. The Hafner had their branches in the Steingasse next to the linen weavers and white tanners. For a long time, an elevation in the Steingasse was called Hafnerb├╝hel.
